You Are Worthy

From Pennsylvania-

Jesus Christ proclaimed a New Kingdom that is not of this world. As people of the New Kingdom, we identify, first, with Jesus Christ. We must always set aside nationalism, party identity, race or place of origin. Our identity is Jesus Christ. We are all beloved children of God. Every person on this earth is created in God’s image. That is a profound and moving realization and identity.

As followers of Jesus Christ who live this identity in the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania I humbly offer the following:

We welcome, accept and embrace all our brothers and sisters; we are a diocese where everyone “belongs.” In Genesis, God created humanity in his image, male and female God created them (1:27). God formed us out of the dust of the earth and breathed the breath of life into us (2:6). God created every inch of this sacred earth and every person with liberating and loving hands. No person nor any place on earth is profane.

No person is unworthy.
